I've known Ace Brewer for over six years, and in that time I've come to know him not only as someone I've done frequent business with, but also as a mentor and a friend. Ace was always there to help with questions I had, and to offer advice as an experienced builder. PPR has always enjoyed a good reputation in the Pontiac community due in large part to Ace's hard work and his desire to please his customers, but it came at a price. He often had alot of working capital tied up in his customer's engine builds, not a good thing if you are waiting 6-12 months for customers to pick up their engines and you have 3-4 completed engines sitting in your shop. This was the ultimate reason he stopped building engines- truely sad because he was not only an excellent Pontiac builder, but an innovator. Ace was responsible for not only developing a 350P/383 stroker, but showing it could also make serious numbers. Ace Brewer also developed the Tomahawk line of performance parts, which the whole Pontiac community enjoys today.
Ace's new business is selling Alkalai water, and from what he tells me his new business venture is already taking off. He will still continue to sell Pontiac cranks and rods, but sadly the one-stop shop for building a Pontiac V-8 will be no more.
